Every once in a while I have the opportunity to collaborate with the most talented vendors to bring to life the most incredible wedding visions! While 2020 was full of challenges it inspired quite the romantic intimate garden wedding…read on for my ideal story behind this creative event…
A day so magical it felt like my most sacred “old-world elegance” wedding day dreams came true. It was as if the secret garden met a vogue magazine. Royal Emeralds, timeless calligraphy written invitations, vibrant florals, and a family-style reception table under trees strung with bistro lights; Every favorite world of mine collided.
We roamed through and explored the hallways of Meadowlark 1939, capturing some fine art images of the bride in her robe, telling the story of the giddiness and romance that awaited her on her special day.
Draped in what felt like seamless elegance, the bride wore a Sakred bridal gown designed by Beccar. A jeweled headband fit for Kate Middleton herself was the perfect accent to the timeless gown. And as for the final touch and hint of glam, she wore velvet emerald heels to tie in the colors of the day.
THE DESIGN OF THE DAY
Meadowlark 1939 is full of nooks of romantic roses, trails of old trees that make you feel so small it’s magical. Under leaves and between flowering walls, there was no better place to host an utterly romantic micro wedding.
Florals in deep ruby, soft pinks, and pops of cream, covered the day. Accenting the greens of the garden, the day was thoughtfully designed. From a jaw droppingly stunning ceremony arch, to spontaneous floral arrangements covering the garden floor; natural beauty met royal toned elegance.
Under that chateau level floral arch, the couple said their “I do’s” in a beautifully intimate ceremony. Surrounded by their best friends, closest family, and the beauty of nature; it was the perfect way to tie the knot.
I don’t know if i’m allowed to say this, but this may have been one of my favorite cocktail hours to date. Stepping into the warmth of a living room, but under the starry lit trees, felt like the most romantic movie coming to life.
A library style bar was the ultimate centerpiece. With glass lamps, and stacks of old books, ordering a drink felt all the more fun. Bistro tables, plush sofas, and curated sitting areas were the perfect way to make this micro wedding feel like a dreamy dinner with your best friends. With plenty of hand sanitizer stations of course.
Under the trees, at a blue velvet table covered in dry moss and florals, awaited the most romantic and stunning family style dinner. Without ever an empty glass in hand, guests told stories around the table of their favorite memories, best moments, and most laughable anecdotes.
It was an intimate dinner that takes the cake (speaking of, the floral covered cake was absolutely swoon worthy) for as fun as it was stunning.
